NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets center Kevin Garnett will miss his fifth straight Sunday night against the Sacramento Kings due to back spasms.

“I’m not concerned,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said. “He looked good today, so we’ll see how he feels tomorrow.”

Mason Plumlee will make his fifth straight start in Garnett’s place. Plumlee is averaging 6.3 points in 5.5 rebounds on 68.8 percent shooting in his last four games.

“I think [Kevin’s] working extremely hard right now,” Kidd said. “It’s about April and May for us.”

The Nets are allowing just 90.8 points per game in the last four games, going 3-1 in that span.

Since Jan. 1 (21 games), Garnett is averaging 7.1 points and 6.4 rebounds on 57 percent shooting in 20.2 minutes.
